Thanks!
Have you considered getting 2 easy to find plain red lenses & taking them to a sign shop & having them cut out some black vinyl that says stop in teh same style as your originals? They make a nice thin vinyl perfect for this as it works well on curves & contours & it would be cheap AND they would both match then - plus they will install it for you, no mistakes! I worked for many years at a sign shop as a graphic designer & most shops can be very creative in your needs... My 2 cents!

You are right about almost all you told him. But a plain red lense can be coated to put the stop back, and what ever you do (unless you need good work lights) Don't mount cessna 7" 30,000 candle power Lights on those top lights, That cost me $5000 in fines. But if you work for a circus it might be worth it.
